"Testimonium, previously titled Testimony 2.2, presents recitation, movement, and music, composed in response toTestimony: The United States 1885 – 1915, the unfinished masterwork by the American Objectivist poet Charles Reznikoff. Bryan Saner recites a reimagined text, unfolding the original with biographical and philosophical material. Stephen Fiehn performs a series of near-silent movement sequences, activating objects on the installation-like stage. Joan of Arc (Tim Kinsella, Bobby Burg, and Theo Katsaounis) perform live an original 6-song cycle. Three alternating modes of performance form a complex weave at three radically different volume levels."
